Peter Wu, Director of IT at Beijing International Market Exchange (BEIMEX) was recognized as one of ten outstanding individuals in regional IT for 2013 by the Chinese Information And Technology Association (CITA). CITA selected the award recipients on a range of criteria, including the overall impact they have had on the regional IT community, their experience with their organizations, and their ability to align business and IT needs perfectly.
Successfully installing a Great Plains ERP system in six months is no mean feat. However Peter Wu and his team member, a graduate from the Beijing Higher Colleges of Technology, managed this on target and in a seamless fashion.
Innovation and excellence have been the hallmarks of this project. Combined with a can-do and motivated attitude from a team of young Chinese nationals, it is clear why Peter and BEIMEX won this prestigious award.
